Judge rules against HHS contraception mandate


Great news for the first of many cases going to court.

quote:

DENVER (BP) -- A federal judge has handed opponents of the Obama administration's abortion/contraceptive mandate their first victory, ruling in favor of a private business whose owners are devout Catholics.

It was the first time a federal judge had ruled against the mandate, which requires employers to purchase insurance plans that cover contraceptives, including ones that can cause chemical abortions. Those drugs, often called morning-after pills and emergency contraceptives, come under various names, including Plan B and ella.

There currently are about 24 lawsuits seeking to overturn the mandate. Many of the suits involve religious organizations.

The mandate was issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Here's a link to the Fox News site about this ruling.

Sorry, I can't pay any taxes as they are against my religion.
Sorry, but my religion requires me to drive 85 in a 70 zone. It purifies my mind and brings me closer to my god whose name we cannot speak.
Yea, my religion requires this, too - pass some more lube, please.

What does paying taxes have to do with having to provide workers with something other than a salary?

Leftism, in its very nature, is anti-free speech. It is dictatorial because it believes in big government dictating to the people. As it has grown in the U.S. we are seeing the true nature of the leftist. Speech is only for them and all others are to follow their dictate or be severly punished.

Don't worry, the John Roberts Court will rule in favor of Obama.

If that happens, expect a lot of good that the Catholics have provided to the public to be closed. The Bishops have promised to do so.

They might have to do it. I have absolutely no faith in this Court to do anything but what it wrong.

We have a 5-4 liberal Court and if Obama gets a second term he will be able to install more liberals.
